Two local church efforts to help those in need are wrapping up this weekend.

If you want to participate in the “Can It With Calvary” food drive, the last day to drop food off at Calvary Lutheran Church is tomorrow, Saturday, November 12. The church came close to collecting a ton of food in its first drive over the summer, and parishioner Joanne Arroyo says it hopes to equal or better that result this time. There are collection boxes at both the front of the church at 23 South Prospect Street and at the Hill Street entrance. Call (973) 239-0577 if you have questions.

You have through Sunday, November 13, to drop off winter wear at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit for its “Share The Warmth” drive.

The church, which is located at 36 Gould Street just opposite the HBW field, is collecting coats, blankets, hats, gloves and scarves.  Coats for children, teens and adults may be gently used, but should be clean. Blankets can be new or used, but must be clean as well; hats, scarves and gloves must be new. The items collected will be given to St. Paul’s Shelter in Paterson, Christ Church Belleville and St. Peter’s Haven in Clifton. To drop your items off, use the parking lot entrance and take the small flight of stairs up to the Fellowship Hall.
